  • Description

    The land holds the truth … the maps will reveal it.

    Sal, Joe, Francie and Humphrey Santander are mapmakers looking for their father, a famous explorer who disappeared on his last expedition.

    Their search leads them to a curious new land and a township under seige. The all-powerful Grania Trading Company plans to uproot the people of Cruxcia and alter the landscape forever. The Santander’s mapping skills may be the last chance for the Cruxcians to keep their homes.
